8. Conor McGregor
There are many Conor McGregor haters out there who will not like his inclusion in this list, probably believing that Conor’s resume of exciting fights is not as vast as others. The fact is that Conor McGregor has only ever had one fight (out of 8 UFC fights) where he wasn’t awarded a performance bonus. That is 7 bonuses in 8 fights, putting him on pace to eventually become the biggest earner of bonuses of all time, though he’s still got 7 bonuses to catch Joe Lauzon and Nate Diaz.
A Conor McGregor fight creates a buzz throughout the venue (or throughout the bar) unlike anyone currently fighting (Rousey’s not currently fighting) and that makes him one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC.
